The Moderator asked the Town to recognize Ruth Brown for all her years of 
service to the Town of Orford. 

David Bischoff reported that the 1891 and 1892 Town Reports were donated by 

14 



John Matyka and the 1902 Town Report was donated by Laura Verry to complete 
two full sets of the Town Reports. 

Rendall Tullar explained that he was a member of the Scenic By-Way Committee 
and expressed his concern of more traffic to the Town if the Town should be 
registered in the National Survey. It was recommended that the Town should 
consider whether or not to be part of the Scenic By-Way in the future. 

There was much discussion of the Police Officer position. It was the consensus 
of the Town's people to have a full time position. It was expressed by Toni Pease 
that Officer Hal Jarvis is dearly missed and that he did much more for the Town 
than what was called upon. Arthur Dennis expressed that one person cannot do 
it all. There was also discussion about a "shared" position with other Towns and 
a suggestion of a committee being formed. After all of the discussion it was still 
agreed to proceed with hiring a full time Police Officer. 

Ginny Marino asked about the 9-1-1 System and when it would be completed. 
The time frame was not known, but hopefully within 6 months. 

The Moderator asked Teke Tomlinson, who attended his first Town Meeting, if the 
United Nations was truly run like a New Hampshire Town Meeting. Mr. Tomlinson 
answered no that the United Nations was definitely not run like a Town Meeting. 

10:41 PM. Recess for counting of elected Town Officers.

BUDGET ADVISORY COMMITTEE REPORT FOR 1996 

The Budget Advisory Committee has worked with the selectmen during several 
rounds of budget request presentation meetings, other working meetings, and a 
formal budget hearing. Substantially more townspeople came to the formal hearing 
this year than last and they were quite vocal in expressing their concerns. 

The Highway Department had originally requested a budget which included 
$20,000.00 for additional help that the Road Agent feels he needs. The Selectmen 
did not want that money to be used solely for additional help, but envisioned it to 
be used for "special projects" to be overseen by them, not the Road Agent. The 
Selectmen reduced the Highway Department request by that $20,000.00 and stated 
that they would Warrant it under a separate article. At the beginning of the formal 
hearing the Selectmen informed us that they were no longer planning to Warrant 
that additional money. After much discussion they were persuaded otherwise and 
agreed to add the separate Article for the $20,000.00 for additional highway help. 

Twice a year tax billing has again reduced debt service on tax anticipation notes. 
There is a down side, however. The Selectmen point out that a major reduction in 
tax delinquencies has occurred which means that the Town is collecting much less 
interest for late taxes than before. The good news for the people is that more of us 
are now able to pay our taxes on time without penalties. 

Capital Reserve Funds deserve credit for helping to smooth out tax burden bumps. 
With a new Town truck on the agenda this year, and an overdue replacement 
needed for the Fire Department in 1 or 2 years, this reserve reduces the extra 
amount we would otherwise have to raise in some years. The Budget Advisory 
Committee requested that Capital Reserve Funds be presented in the Orford Town 
Report in a way to clearly summarize status before and after proposed budgets. 
The Selectmen agreed to consider this for next year. 

Each department presented their proposed budget to the Selectmen and the Budget 
Advisory Committee, and it was evident that they had "squeezed" until it hurt. During the 
budget review meeting just prior to the formal hearing it was believed that the budget 
was going to be $12,000.00 under last year's, so the Selectmen and Budget 
Advisory Committee agreed to set aside some extra money into the fire truck 
Capital Reserve, if a reduction of the budget was indeed the case. This was not to 
be. A math error was found and corrected by the Selectmen that now unfortunately 
shows a 9% increase in the amount to be raised by taxes over last year. The 
amount to now be raised by taxes is $281 ,598.00 (last year was $258,547.00). 

We now agree with the proposed budget for 1997.

AUDITOR'S CERTIFICATE 

As of 2-4-97 

This is to certify that I have audited the various Town Officers' books for the fiscal 
year ending 12-31-96 as required by State law and have found them to be 
correct to the best of my knowledge and belief. 

The Trustee of the Funds' books were not available as of my certification date, 
consequently that portion of the audit is not included in this report. As soon as 
they are made available they will be reviewed and my report will be made to the 
Town of Orford and the State of New Hampshire.

DOG LICENSE FEES 

Male or Female $ 9.00 

Altered Animals 6.50 

Senior Citizens: for one animal 2.00 

thereafter, the regular fee 
(owner over 65 years of age) 
License fee for a puppy (older than 3 months but younger than 7 months) is $6.50 for 
the first initial year, (effective 01/01/97) 

GROUP LICENSES (effective 08/09/96) 

The minimum number of dogs required to qualify for a group license is five (5) dogs, 

and a standard fee of $20.00. 

Proof of rabies and altering is required. 

All dogs should be licensed by April 30, 1997 to avoid any penalty. 

The Town Clerk's Office will be receiving the triplicate copy of the rabies vaccination 
for dogs and cats directly from New Hampshire veterinarians for the dogs or cats 
whose owners reside in Orford. If your dog is not licensed with the Town of Orford by 
May 31, 1997, we will be obligated to inform the Orford Animal Control Officer of a 
violation of RSA 466:1 . A civil forfeiture will be issued which carries with it a $25.00 fine. 

RABIES CLINIC 

A "Rabies Clinic" has been scheduled to be held on Monday, April 14, 1997, 
between 6:30 and 7:30 p.m. at the Orford Fire Station. This has been arranged with 
the Oxbow Veterinary Clinic of Bradford, Vermont, the Orford Town Clerk, and Orford 
Fire Department. Attendance at this program is not only convenient, but offers these 
shots at a reduced rate. 

Dog Rabies $ 5.00 

Dogs EPI Vaccine (distemper, etc.) 10.00 

Cat Rabies and Distemper 10.00 

Cat Leukemia 12.00 

If people see an animal they suspect of being rabid, contact Roy Daisey, Orford 

Animal Control Officer, Orford Police Department or the N.H. Fish and Game 

Department. 

RSA 436:99, ll-VI requires that all dogs and cats have rabies shots once they reach the age of 
3 months. This became effective on January 1, 1993. The first rabies shot will be good for only one 
year, on a young dog or cat, but a three-year vaccine will be given thereafter. 

Rabies is a viral disease which attacks the central nervous system in mammals including wild 
animals, pets and humans. If untreated, it is almost always fatal. 

Rabies is spread from a bite or contact with the saliva of an Infected animal. An indication 
that an animal has rabies is a noted change in its behavior, such as loss of the normal fear of humans 
or a display of hostile actions. Rabies is impossible to diagnose without a medical test that can only 
be done after the infected mammal is dead. 

Rabies is preventable. Dogs, cats, horses and other domestic animals can be vaccinated against 
the disease. If the vaccinated pet comes into contact with an infected animal, the disease will not 
spread. IHowever, humans that come Into contact with the saliva from a rabid animal on their 
pet can get the disease. If exposed to saliva from any animal which may be suspected of carrying 
rabies, the wound or infected area should be soaked for 10 minutes in soap and water prior to going 
to the emergency room of a hospital. 

In Orford, we have had five cases of rabies diagnosed. Please take this advice 
seriously and have your pets vaccinated against the rabies virus.

SELECTMEN 

It was clear from discussions at Town Meeting '96 that the residents want a full 
time Police Chief. Immediately after Town meeting, we began our Police Chief 
search. We set a timetable that would give the Town a new chief by the beginning 
of summer. Unfortunately this did not work out as planned. Our first choice accepted 
the position and then declined just days before he was to begin work. After further 
interviews, Michael LaChapelle was hired and started work in early September. 
He has over 1 5 years' experience and is settling in for what we all anticipate being 
a long working relationship with Orford. 

9-1-1 mapping continues. The long delay is a result of the mapping process. 
Between having the roads measured and mapped, the Town naming streets and 
verifying maps and the State producing updated maps, it is a time-consuming 
process. As stated in the Police Chief's report, in case of an emergency dial 9-1-1. 

Two major projects were completed by the Highway Department last 
summer. Because of damage caused by the flooding from the January 
thaw, the bridge and a section of Quinttown Road had to be repaired. 
This was done with money that was received from the Federal 
Emergency Management Administration. The spillway at Indian Pond 
was rebuilt in August. This was necessary as we had received a deficiency 
notice on the old dam from the State. The elevation of the new spillway 
should help reduce shoreline erosion. The Town is co-owner of the dam 
with the Schwaeglers and the project cost was shared with them. We 
would like to thank Bruce for all the work he did; permit process, planning, 
coordinating and use of his equipment and labor. We would also like to 
thank the residents who volunteered their time and labor to help with 
the work. 

The reappraisal is progressing. At this point, most of the site inspections 
have been done. The market survey and the other clerical work continues. 
In the spring there will be an opportunity for those who missed the initial 
visit to make an appointment to have an appraiser come for a house 
inspection. When the appraisal process is complete, individual property 
owners will be sent their new valuation. At this point they will be able to 
meet with the appraisers if they have any questions. The new valuations 
will be used for the second 1997 billing. 

With the completion of the reappraisal, the Selectmen will review the 
information and new valuations before we accept the project as complete. 
We will all need to learn the new system. The information will be on a 
new computer that is dedicated to property valuations. This will make our 
work much more efficient. 



59 



This year the Board, with the Road Agent, hopes to develop a plan to 
reconstruct the bridge over Jacob's Brook on Brook Road. The abutments, 
stringers and the decking must be replaced. Depending on the cost 
and timing, we may apply for State Bridge Aid to help with funding for 
this project. 

The tree program on the common will continue even though there are no 
longer funds available from the Small Business Administration. This year 
we may need to replace one tree. Fertilizing and hopefully some stump 
grinding will be done. 

The Selectmen have strived to prepare a budget that will have a minimal 
impact on the Town's portion of the tax rate. !t is always difficult to 
balance what the Selectmen feel the needs of the Town are and what we 
as taxpayers can afford. With the budget as recommended by the 
Selectmen, we anticipate a 1.2% increase in the amount needed to be 
raised by taxes. With the additional $20,000.00 for highway department 
personnel, the increase would be 8.9%. 

We are recommending that the Town purchase an additional full-size 
dump truck with a sander, plow blade and wing. The reasoning for this 
purchase is to more efficiently maintain the roads, particularly in the 
winter. It is our expectation that a truck of this size should last at least 
ten years. As we would have two full-size Town trucks, the eventual plan 
is to replace one truck every five years. We also recommend that we 
keep our present one-ton dump truck for jobs such as hauling the culvert 
thawer, as a back-up vehicle, especially in winter, and for going for parts. 
This is more cost efficient than using the full-size trucks. 

Article 10, asking for an additional $20,000.00 funding for the Highway 
Department, is not recommended by the Selectmen. We realize that a 
similar article passed last year at Town Meeting and we therefore included 
it in the warrant in order to give you the opportunity to vote on this 
additional funding. 

We would like to thank Bill McKee for all the time and work he put into 
perambulating the Orford/Piermont town line with Eric Underhill. This 
project is required by State statute and requires time and abilities not 
possessed by everyone. We are lucky that there are people in town that 
are willing to pitch in when needed.

ORFORD CEMETERY COMMISSION 

The Orford Cemetery Commission is pleased to report that the repair and the 
cleaning of the stones and markers in all three cemeteries was completed 
this Fall. Those stones in the very oldest parts of our cemeteries that were 
damaged by time have been preserved as well as straightened where it was 
possible and mended when pieces were broken. We are proud of the work 
done by Winston Doe of Ryegate, Vermont. 

Our maintenance work in the East and Street Cemeteries was done by Fay 
Bean and Kurt Gendron with Shirley Gendron assisting part time. The Dame 
Hill Cemetery was maintained exclusively by Fred and Judy Siemens. We 
are grateful to all. Their painstaking and caring work has brought many 
complimentary comments and notes from family members. 

We now expect that next year's work will be started on the fence of the Street 
Cemetery. The Commissioners are also beginning an alphabetized list of 
burials in each Cemetery. This will assist in locating ancestors for the ever- 
increasing number of people who request such information each year.

EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT 



The Town of Orford's new FEMA field representative is Nancy R. Wurtz. She 
is taking over Howard Gaskill's position as he recently retired. 

Recently parts of Orford were without electricity for an extended period. This can 
cause problems particularly for the elderly or infirm. If you are without heat or 
electricity for 24 hours, it would be helpful if you called and let me know. I will take 
count or help in any way needed. If there are many doing without heat in this cold 
season then perhaps I can help speed the power company on service. 

The Town of Orford does have an Emergency Management Plan in case of a disaster. 
Those responsibile for implementing the plan are: the Emergency Management 
Director, the Board of Selectmen, the Fire Chief, the Chief of Police and the Road 
Agent. We all hope that we will never have a major emergency crisis but, if we do, 
then we will be organized to control the problem and help those in need. 

I thank the members of the Town of Orford for their continued support

The 1 996 year started off with a lot of snow. We had a record January thaw, losing 
two feet of snow in less than 24 hours. We lost 250 feet of the Orfordville Road 
at a cost of $2500.00. We graveled parts of the Quinttown Road due to wash outs 
with F.E.M.A . funds (Federal Emergency Management Agency). The big Bridge 
in Quinttown was repaired with new stringers, decking and railing with F.E.M.A. 
funds. (Total of $10,000.00 for the gravel and bridge). 

New rails were put on the White Bridge on Archertown Road and we took out the 
old bridge at Indian Pond Road and put in a 42-inch pipe. We replaced the 
spillway at Indian Pond and redecked the bridge on Piermont Heights Road. 

The River Road was sealed for .07 miles. We laid 700 yards of pug mix on the 
Archertown and Indian Pond Roads. 

I have enjoyed working with the people of Orford and I thank you for your support.

ORFORD FREE LIBRARY 

1996 was a successful year for the Orford Free Library due to the support of the 
Town of Orford, The Friends of the Orford Libraries, and the time and energy of 
individuals. In July, we welcomed Roberta Roberts as our new librarian. Our 
mission has been clarified by the ideas and suggestions from a brainstorming 
session attended by about 10 interested citizens on July 25th. Suggestions were 
made regarding: more programs, more outreach to the community, additional 
uses for the new computer and changes in the hours to make the library more 
accessible. The Free Library is now open from 3:30 - 7:30 p.m. Tuesday and 
Friday evenings and from 2:00 - 5:00 p.m. on Sunday. 

Volunteers made a big difference in 1996. Barbara Hail came in weekly to help. 
Joe Arcolio installed a door to the historical room to improve our control of heat 
flow. Anna Knapp, Hannah Marsh, Kristen Kling, Kristin Ross and Sarah Roberts 
have helped with such things as storytime presentations, book sales, library 
chores and decorating the library for Christmas. Richard Butman has answered a 
number of questions asked by visitors who were seeking information about local 
history and past residents. Many thanks to the parents of Orford second graders 
who have helped transport the children to the library for their visit every other 
Tuesday. An open house/book sale/bake sale was held in August. Many people 
contributed to the success of this event through the donation of books, baked 
goods and time. Randy Lowe, of Lyme Software, introduced our new computer 
system and Marion Jacobus presented a puppet show at this event. Proceeds 
from the sale were added to our book purchasing funds. Sincere thanks to all 
those who have contributed refreshments, expertise, and time to the Free Library 
throughout the year. 

In November, Roberta Roberts and Sarah Putnam presented a program to the 
2nd and 3rd graders at the Orford Elementary School. Books which have won the 
Caldecott Medal awards for excellence were discussed and read to the combined 
classes. This was a successful joint effort by the two town librarians and the 2nd 
and 3rd grade elementary teachers. 

The new computer is being used to access the New Hampshire State Library 
system. It also makes available the ILL (Interlibrary Loan) system, which gives 
patrons access to the collections of ALL the libraries in the state. In the past three 
months, the Free Library has provided 22 books specifically requested by patrons 
through the ILL system. In the coming year, it is expected that this computer will 
be used for cataloging our acquisitions. The computer is available to the community 
for research, word processing, record keeping and access to the Internet. We 
welcome all interested residents. 

The Free Library building has been the meeting site for the Orford Historical 
Society on several evenings. It has also been the location for our monthly 



66 



informative/entertaining programs on Sunday afternoons. Free Library Trustee 
meetings are held the third Tuesday of every other month — beginning in January 
— at 7:00 p.m. The public is welcome. 

The five main goals for 1997 at the Free Library include: 1) heating the historical 
room to allow year round use of the entire library and to protect and preserve the 
collection in that room, 2) cataloging all historical material at the library, 
3) improving the Young Adult collection, 4) providing a more comfortable 
and welcoming area for children and young adults, and 5) providing community 
access to the Internet.

ORFORD SOCIAL LIBRARY 

The Orford Social Library Trustees are pleased to report the completion and 
acceptance of our Long Range Plan. This is now helping us set our priorities for 
the years ahead. Our special thanks go to Community members Jane Duffaney 
and Carl Schmidt who gave many hours of their time to work with Trustees 
Jude Parker and Ruth Brown to formulate these goals. The Long Range Plan is 
available for anyone who wishes to see it. 

One priority, a computer for public use, will be in place in late February or early 
March of 1997. 

The Social Library facilities continue to be used by the Orford Community for 
many different activities including monthly meeting space as well as programs. 

Library activities are our main interest as we continue to host the Elementary 
School classes for stories and book selection. A popular monthly activity is our 
pre-school story hour as well as the adult book discussion group. The summer 
programs for children that we share with the Orford Free Library continue each year. 

By popular demand, our Library Hours have been increased so that we are 
now open: 

Monday 6:00 p.m. — 8:00 p.m. 

Wednesday 10:00 a.m. — 1:00 p.m. 

Thursday 5:00 p.m. — 7:00 p.m. 

Friday 2:00 p.m. — 5:00 p.m. 

Saturday 10:00 a.m. — 1:00 p.m. 

We are most grateful for the work of our volunteers. Their help in numerous areas is a 
most valuable asset to the effectiveness of our library service to the Orford Community. 
Special thanks go to our computer experts, Steven Micare, Joe Davis and Patrick 
O'Bryan and our evening volunteers, Rika Schmidt and Jean Dyke. 

The Trustees especially wish to thank our Librarian, Sarah Putnam, whose dedication, 
ingenuity, and imagination have created an endearing Library for us and for our many 
loyal patrons. Our statistics and our progress graph are true testimony to the success of 
her endeavors.

NILES COMMITTEE 

The Niles Committee was formed in 1988 to dispense by request the interest on 
a gift of $50,000.00 to the Town of Orford by Mrs. Lenore Niles. Both Mr. and Mrs. 
Niles, who moved to Orford in 1950, had a deep affection for our town and its 
people. Mrs. Niles passed away in 1988, and left us a generous and unrestricted 
gift to be used for the betterment of Orford and its residents. 

The Niles Committee met three times in 1996 for the purpose of reviewing 
applications received. The following appropriations were made from the Niles 
Fund this year: 

High School Field Trip to Museum of Fine Arts $375.00 

Orford Historical Society Start-Up Funds 500.00 

Orford Babe Ruth Baseball Team Equipment 250.00 

Maintenance of Trees on Town Property 235.00 
Orford Committee for Educational Partnership — 

Contribution to Multi-Town Educational Conference 155.00 
Purchase of Plaque and Framing of Photograph for 

Niles Room at Town Offices 162.26 



TOTAL $1677.26 

Applications to the Niles Committee for funds for community wide efforts, service 
projects and programs are kept at the Town Offices, and may be picked up 
during regular office hours.

PARKS AND PLAYGROUNDS 

The increase in the budget was due mainly to an increase in rates at the Skiway 
for the Ski Program. 

A new chain link fence was installed at the soccer field. It replaced the old railroad 

tie cable fence. 

Parks and Playground will be planning another Green-Up day this spring. Last 
year's was cancelled due to poor weather.

ORFORD PLANNING BOARD 

Applications for action by the Planning Board were about at the previous year's level. 
Major actions taken were: 

Approved one (1) application forminor lot line adjustments No new lots 

Approved one (1) application for annexation Minus one lot 

Approved three (3) applications for minor subdivisions Five new lots 
Held eight (8) informal discussions before application 

Total new building lots Four 

Other actions taken: 

Initiated an update of the Master Plan but later put it on hold due to the heavy 
citizen involvement in various studies relating to the local schools. We plan to 
readdress this as soon as the School situation is resolved. 

Recommended that all septic system applications be reviewed by the Selectmen 
before state application and that the Selectmen initiate a simplified "Building 
Permit" system. Both actions are to provide an early warning to the Board and 
the Selectmen of possible non-conforming activity per the Orford Subdivision 
Regulations and the tax consequences of new construction. 

Participated in development of information for inclusion in the Tri-State 
Connecticut River Scenic Byway Project. 

Reviewed and suggested minor revisions to Driveway Regulations for the Town. 

Planning Board officers were elected at the March 1996 meeting: 

Chairman Paul Dalton 

Vice-Chairman Elizabeth Bischoff 

Secretary Andrew Schwaegler 

Selectmen's Rep. David Bischoff 

Virgil Mack resigned from the Board due to relocation. Gary Hill replaced him but also 
had to resign at year-end due to business commitments. He is being replaced by David Coker. 

The Board continues to contract with an UVLSRPC circuit rider, Shelly Hadfield, to be 
at the Town Offices one Friday per month from 1 :30 - 3:30 PM (dates posted at Town 
Hall) to help applicants with questions and procedures. She is also available for 
appointments by calling (603) 448-1680, the Lebanon office of the Upper Valley Lake 
Sunapee Regional Planning Commission. We urge everyone to avail themselves of the 
"informal discussion" process to simplify applications, keep costs to a minimum and 
understand the issues before they become problems.

Chairman

POLICE DEPARTMENT 

First, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the citizens of Orford for the warm 
welcome that I received when I became Chief of your Town. 

Your Police Department experienced a few changes this year which are to be 
expected with a new Chief of Police. The most significant one being a more pro-active 
approach to the potential problems of the community. As some of you have noticed, 
there is a higher police visibility on Orford's roads and a stronger emphasis on 
enforcement. 

Also John Richardson was hired as a Part-Time Police Officer at no expense to the 
Town. John lives in Ortord and brings with him a solid background in the legal 
profession. With John's help, I hope to provide Orford with a faster police response on 
my days off instead of having an Orford citizen waiting, sometimes over an hour, for 
the busy and understaffed State Police. 

1 996 saw a slight decrease in animal complaints but we did have five confirmed cases 
of rabid animals with another fifteen suspected. Since it is difficult to determine when 
the rabies epidemic will "peak," it is very important that all of your domestic animals be 
vaccinated. 

I have heard from a few citizens that the 9-1-1 system does not work. The fact of the 
matter is that the 9-1-1 system does work, it's just not fully functional. When you dial 
9-1-1 , you still have to remain on the phone with the dispatcher and give him/her the 
appropriate information, i.e. name, location calling from, nature of the problem. You 
should also remember that the Orford Police Department's Town Hall number is not 
for emergencies. If you call the Town Hall number and no one is in the office, you will 
get a recording to leave a message. If you wish to speak with me about an urgent 
matter but there is no emergency, you can still use the old emergency number of 
353-4347, this number goes to Hanover dispatch and they can reach me 24 hours a 
day. In an emergency DIAL 9-1 -1 . 

In closing, I would remind Orford citizens that we are not immune from crime. If you 
observe anything suspicious, call the police. I would rather respond to a call and find 
out it was a '1alse alarm," instead of not being called to an actual crime in progress. 

Michael LaChapelle

SKI PROGRAM 

The program offers beginner, intermediate and advanced instruction in alpine 
skiing on eight consecutive Wednesday afternoons from the beginning of 
January to early March at the Dartmouth Skiway. Bus transportation is provided 
to and from the Skiway. The program is open to all school-age residents of 
Orford and to all students in the Orford Schools. A nominal fee is charged to 
supplement funding from the Parks and Recreation Commission. 

The 1 996 season was very successful aided by heavy early season snow. We did 
have to cancel one week during the January thaw due to rain but it turned out to be 
fortuitous — the make-up week extended the season into the second week of March 
and gave us a beautiful sunny day for our annual end-of-year carnival and races. 
Race results give all children a chance to realize their real progress each year. 

A total of 73 children participated this year, some 31% of the entire school 
enrollment. We had 4 kindergarten and eight first-grade beginners, 49 children in 
grades 2 — 8 and 12 high schoolers. 

We had 1 8 instructors volunteer their time and talents, 1 in the beginner group and 
8 for more advanced skiers. Three additional substitutes proved invaluable as 
schedule conflicts are inevitable over an 8-week period. Thanks again to our "Old 
Faithfuls" and also the new volunteers. Special thanks this year go to Doug Tifft and 
Cathy Richmond, non-skiers, who rode the bus each week, maintained headcounts 
and kept peace and tranquility (plus lots of cookies) in the lodge for the children as 
they warmed up on cold days. 

As with most things, the cost of skiing at the Skiway increased this year to $40 per 
participant. However, the program Committee decided to hold the fee at last year's 
level of $35 and to make up the difference with program economies and special 
fund raisers (food sale at Flea Market, etc.). Overall, the program ran a deficit of 
about $700 this year. We ask your help in any way to increase private fundraising 
and keep the costs to a minimum. 

A very special Thank You this year to Margaret (Wheeler) Lacoste for all her years 
of dedication to the program. Margaret and her husband Don are relocating to 
Presque Isle, ME. She will be sorely missed for her long dedication to Orford Skiing.

SWIM PROGRAM 

Another year and the children of Orford are better swimmers than ever! We saw 
lots of young newcomers to the swim program and served a total of 65 children. 
We welcomed the return of Li Ling Young as instructor and wish to recognize her 
expertise in our service for the past two years. 

Also we express great appreciation to Randy Perry for his work on behalf of the 
recreation committee on the docks and the floats. He was a willing worker there 
to assist in getting the pond ready for lessons. 

For the coming summer we will be in need of a new instructor and some new 
members for the swim committee. It would be ideal to find a local person who 
would be willing to be available for several years as instructor. Parents of 
younger children make great members of the committee for continuity. Many 
hands make light work. We have organized the program so the work can be 
shared, leaving no one person with too great a burden. Please contact Peggy 
Villar at 353-4552 if you or someone you know would be willing to serve.

CONNECTICUT RIVER JOINT COMMISSIONS 
UPPER VALLEY RIVER SUBCOMMITTEE 

The Upper Valley River Subcommittee met monthly in 1996 to complete its work on 
the Connecticut River Corridor Management Plan. The Subcommittee, made up of 
local residents from riverfront towns in New Hampshire and Vermont representing 
agriculture, local business, riverfront landowners, local government, and recreation 
and conservation interests, continued to meet with experts from a variety of fields and 
examined river issues of importance to each community in the Upper Valley. 

The management plan, which results from four years of work by the Subcommittee, 
is intended as a guide for use by local municipalities, public agencies, private 
organizations, and landowners and other individuals. It recognizes the Connecticut 
River as an invaluable resource, addresses opportunities for its use, and provides 
a coordinated approach for local residents and municipalities to practice good 
stewardship of the river corridor in the future. The plan focuses on water quality, 
recreation and access, aquatic habitat, wildlife, endangered species, agriculture, bank 
erosion and development. 

The Subcommittee has learned that one of the greatest threats to water quality, 
aquatic habitat, water-based recreation, and landowners is bank erosion, which is a 
very complicated issue. Its work also has shown that our towns should consider 
carefully the potential effects of allowing development too close to the river. Flooding 
in the spring and summer of 1996 demonstrated that the river will use its flood plain 
for flood storage. 

The management plan is now being prepared for printing and will be ready for public 
review this spring. The Connecticut River Joint Commissions will invite planning 
boards, conservation commissions, selectmen, and the public in Orford and other 
local riverfront towns to consider which of its findings and recommendations might be 
considered for adoption. In the meantime, we welcome anyone who is interested in 
learning more about the plan to contact us. 

The Upper Valley River Subcommittee of the Connecticut River Joint Commissions, 
formed in 1993 under the New Hampshire Rivers Management and Protection Act, 
includes riverfront towns from Piermont to Lebanon, and Bradford to Hartford. In 
addition to preparing the plan, the Subcommittee advises the states and the Joint 
Commissions on actions that could affect the river. The Subcommittee is advisory and 
has no regulatory powers. All meetings are open to the public and take place on the 
third Monday of each month from 7-9 p.m. at the Lyme Town Office. Local residents 
are encouraged to attend and contribute their ideas. If you wish to serve on the 
Subcommittee, please contact the Board of Selectmen.

GRAFTON COUNTY SENIOR CITIZENS COUNCIL, INC. 

Grafton County Senior Citizens Council, Inc. works through its local programs to 
enhance the health and wellbeing of our older citizens and to assist thenri to 
remain independent in their own homes and communities for as long as possible. 
Through eight locations throughout the County, including Plymouth, Bristol, 
Canaan, Lebanon, Orford, Haverhill, Littleton and Lincoln, older adults and their 
families are able to obtain services such as home delivered meals, senior dining 
room programs, transportation, social work services, information and referral, 
health and educational programs, adult day care, recreation and opportunities to 
be of service to the community through volunteering. 

During 1996, 65 older residents of Orford were able to make use of one or more 
of GCSCC's services. These individuals enjoyed balanced meals in the company 
of friends in a senior dining room, received hot, nourishing meals delivered to their 
homes by caring volunteers, were transported to health care providers or other 
community resources by our lift-equipped buses, and found opportunities to put 
their talents and skills to work for a better community through volunteer service. 
The cost to provide these services for Orford residents was $8,130.85. 

Community based services provided by GCSCC and its many volunteers for older 
residents of Orford were often important to their efforts to remain in their own 
homes and out of institutional care despite chronic health problems and 
increasing physical frailty, saving tax dollars and contributing to the quality of life 
of our older friends and neighbors. 

GCSCC very much appreciates the support of the Orford community for services 
which enhance the independence and dignity of our older citizens and assists 
them to meet the challenges of aging in place

UPPER VALLEY AMBULANCE 

1996 was a special year for us at Upper Valley Ambulance. Your service was the 
recipient of the 1996 Vermont Emergency Medical Service of the Year award, the 
highest recognition offered by the State. This award falls on the heels of last 
year's award which recognized UVA's administrator as the 1995 Officer of the 
Year. We are all very proud of the service and what they have come to represent. 

There is a whole new vocabulary coming into existence, which may significantly 
impact Upper Valley Ambulance, Inc. Terms like HMO, PRO, PCP, required 
pre-authorization, retrospective utilization review and capitation will become 
increasingly familiar. These phrases are used in health care insurance and 
managed care organizations, which are becoming increasingly common in the 
Upper Valley. UVA is networking with other ambulance services to improve our 
position and to educate and work with these agencies in order to maintain our 
viability as an excellent provider of pre-hospital emergency services. 

Upper Valley Ambulance, Inc. has continued to grow to meet the complex 
challenge of providing emergency transport ambulance service to the eight-town 
region. UVA has had another very busy year in 1996. We responded to 
approximately 630 requests for medical assistance. Of those 630 requests, care 
was delivered without transporting the patient about 25% of the time. UVA does 
not charge in those instances. Our efforts to keep costs down for the townspeople 
by diversifying operations have been successful. The per capita charge to the 
eight towns will decrease from $14.38 to $14.00 for the upcoming year. As a point 
of reference, $1 .00 per capita equals roughly $10,000. We are continuing with the 
policy of not requiring the eight member towns to guarantee payment for unpaid 
ambulance bills. When Upper Valley Ambulance started six years ago the per 
capita cost was $14.00. 

The Board of Directors of Upper Valley Ambulance have reviewed the budgetary 
needs for the upcoming year. The budget reflects no increase in salaries and 
no increase in training expenses. UVA expects to write off over $100,000 in 
contractual allowances to Medicare/Medicaid, and Bad Debt. We expect to turn 
over an additional $50,000 in unpaid bills to our collection agency. The Dartmouth 
helicopter service (DHART) has also had an impact in our transport services, 
especially in the area of infant transport. 

Now, to summarize the activities of Upper Valley Ambulance. The primary focus 
for the ambulance service is to provide emergency transport services. We project 
a volume of 600 emergency responses from the eight-town area for the upcoming 
year. UVA continues to provide DHMC with transport services for their ICN and 
PICU. We expect to do 215 and 65 of these transports respectively. Also, we 
expect to do 350 non-emergency transfers. UVA has had continuing success with 



83 



a vigorous campaign to increase the volume of our non-emergency transfers. Of 
course, even though we are doing these non-emeregency services, there is no 
compromise of the ambulance service to serve its primary mission of providing 
emergency services in the eight-town coverage area. 

We continue to use a mix of full time and part time paid ambulance personnel. The 
day to day operations of the ambulance service are being expertly managed by 
John Vose, Administrator and Kevin Cole, Field Supervisor, who report directly 
to the committee of Town Directors, who are appointed by the Selectmen of the 
towns. UVA has worked very hard to become a focal point for training for the local 
F.A.S.T squads and fire departments in the region. 

We have set some ambitious goals for 1997. It has been our goal since we 
started providing this service to deliver the highest level of emergency care 
possible. We have upgraded our service from EMT Intermediate to the 
Paramedic level which allows the administration of IV fluids and medications, 
advanced airway control and use of defibrillation for heart attack victims. In 
addition, we hope to implement a Domicile Risk Assessment Program this 
year where our crews will go to the homes of our elderly citizens and assess 
their homes for potential fall hazards, and make recommendations for a safer 
home environment in the hopes of preventing an injury from occurring. 

An opportunity you as a resident of a member town can take advantaage of is 
our Subscription Service. The yearly membership fee entitles you to medically 
necessary Emergency Medical Services at no additional cost to you. 
Subscription applications are available at your local Town Offices, at Upper 
Valley Ambulance's Business Office in Fairlee, or area places of business. 
Call (802) 333-4043 for further information.

UPPER VALLEY LAKE SUNAPEE REGIONAL 
PLANNING COMMISSION 

The Upper Valley Lake Sunapee Regional Planning Commission is a voluntary 
association of thirty-one towns. The Commission is concerned with the 
development of comprehensive plans for beneficial and balanced economic, 
environmental and social growth in the Region. It functions as a research, 
resource and informational agency and, when appropriate, acts to obtain Federal, 
State and other approvals, grants-in-aid, loans and similar assistance for 
individual member towns and for the Region. The Commission provides technical 
assistance to member communities in the areas of planning (land use, 
transportation, water quality, etc.), mapping, community development, 
grantsmanship and grant administration. In addition, regional studies, such as our 
Regional Transportation Plan, and regional projects, such as household 
hazardous waste collections and the Connecticut River Scenic Byway Study, are 
undertaken to the benefit of more than one community. 

In the past year, services such as our Planning Board training series and library, 
which features maps, planning resources and U.S. Census data, were available 
to all of our member communities. Orford residents have taken advantage of 
some of these services. 

In 1996, our work specifically for the Town of Orford included: 

Provided information about cost per pupil in area towns. 

Recommended way to administer subdivision regulations when the 

subdivision involves two dwellings on a lot rather than new lot lines. 

Discussed the definition of subdivision and what types of projects are 

subject to subdivision regulations. 

Provided OSP population estimates and projections. 

Provided circuit-riding planner services. 

Met with Planning Board to review Scenic Byway Inventory. 

Conducted traffic counts at six locations. 

Wrote successful grant application to fund and staff an economic 

development program for our ten Grafton County Communities. 

Created and provided map of agricultural lands, prime agricultural 

soils and protected lands. 

Provided and updated copy of Community Development Plan to 

support CDBG application. 

Our Commission looks forward to serving Orford in the coming year.

VISITING NURSE ALLIANCE OF VERMONT 
AND NEW HAMPSHIRE, INC. 

We are very grateful for the continued support Orford provides to help VNA meet 
the home care and hospice needs of its community members. Here are some 
crucial points to consider regarding the importance of funding VNA programs in 
your town. 

• VNA services are available to persons of all ages and all economic means. 

• Hospital discharge planners and attending physicians work closely with 
VNA to decide a course of treatment for each home health care patient. 

• Our VNA staff from the Bradford Branch provides skilled services for people who: 

o are recovering from surgery, have an acute illness, or disability 

o require long term care 

o need support and symptom control during a terminal illness 

• Town funds help provide care for people who do not have adequate 
insurance or the ability to pay. 

Changes in health care systems nationally are placing the very heart of patient care 
responsibility in the hands of home care agencies. VNA is pleased to help ensure 
a health care safety net for the people of Orford. 

The following services were provided in the Town of Orford during the past year.

MINUTES OF ANNUAL MEETING 

ORFORD SCHOOL DISTRICT 

FRIDAY, MARCH 15, 1996 

ARTICLE 1 : The Annual School District Meeting was called to order at 4:12 p.m. by 
Moderator Peter Thomson. The ballots were counted (584) and the polls were opened 
to cast ballots for the School District officers for the ensuing year. 

(Articles 2 through 9 would not be considered until 7:00 p.m.) 

At 7:10 p.m., Moderator Thomson called the meeting into session and led the Flag 
Salute. The following announcements were made: the Class of '98 was selling 
calendars in the hall, the Booster Club is asking for new members, and that walk-in 
registrations would cease at 7:00 p.m. 

The motion by Tom Trunzo, seconded by Bob Palifka to suspend the reading of the 
warrant passed by a unanimous voice vote in the affirmative. 

ARTICLE 2: The report of the study committee established at the March, 1995 
Annual School District Meeting to consider ways of best providing secondary 
education to Orford students was presented by Paul Goundry. The findings and 
recommendations are: After 10 months and 23 meetings, plus participation in the 
Roundtables, the Orford High School Study Committee makes the following 
conclusions and strong recommendations: 

We urge the passage of the Warrant article prepared by the committee. In this 
article, we have tried to set a course for the study of a regional approach by giving 
a specific agenda which must go beyond the Academy building and other towns 
joining Orford High School to solve Orford's problem. This is a significantly 
different approach. During the two-year study period, the following must also be 
accomplished: 

1 . In order for the town to make informed decisions on the fate of the high school, 
and given the fact that we have one of the highest per pupil costs in the state, the 
School Board must appoint a committee of concerned individuals to re-examine 
our school system and develop a vision, plan and costs for their schools. 

2. Additionally, the Orford School Board not raise the Orford School District tax 
rate during the two year study period. Increases in the budget could be offset by 
aggressive marketing, grants, or private donations. 

While everyone who has taken part in discussion concerning the high school all 
agree that a regional approach is in the best interests of the town of Orford and 
probably neighboring towns, we must be prepared in the event it does not 
become a reality. 



92 



3. Activate present or create a new Building Committee to investigate in detail the 
costs associated with and how to accomplish the renovation, reconstruction, and 
equipping of the Academy building, 

4. Given the recent actions and pending warrant articles of sending towns, the 
School Board and administration must immediately re-examine the efforts they 
undertake to recruit tuition students and develop and implement a new plan. 

5. The Town must recognize that the present tuition revenue is a significant 
portion of the high school budget, but that the tuition rate this income represents 
does not cover the actual cost per student. However, if this revenue falls 
significantly, the cost of Orford High School will become prohibitive. 

For the success of these recommendations, the school and town communities 
must work together to establish and maintain all aspects of the school system. 
The school must utilize the diverse experiences and expertise of the residents of 
Orford. 

The process that this committee has been through In the past ten months has 
been very arduous. The issues that are being investigated are difficult and the 
emotions that are involved are very intense. The process was not made any 
easier by rumors circulating around town, and the strained relationship with the 
school administration that developed when the Committee began to take a 
detailed look at the high school. When George Burlison resigned from the 
Committee after only six meetings, the school community lost its direct line of 
communication and input into the working of the Committee. After this, it seemed 
to be more difficult to receive requested information from the administration and 
the SAU. This strained relationship culminated with SAU's 2/14/96 presentation 
of "Orford's Options" to the Orford School Board. 

A concern the committee had from the beginning was that we not be a repeat of 
the past. We have tried to look critically at the overall issues affecting the high 
school, realizing that it is providing a sound education to the students. It Is now 
up to the Town to decide the future and direction of Orford's schools. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Paul Goundry Ginny Marino 

Mark Johnson Quentin Mack 

Don Weisburger 

Sue Turpin paid tribute to the Study Committee for their hours of work and 
recommendations to the school district. A hearty round of applause was given to the 
committee. 

Pat Hammond asked Superintendent Delia Badia if he would give his opinion on the 
recommendations and the report. Mr. Delia Badia's reply was that he felt the 



93 



committee was going in the right direction and heartily approved the 
recommendations. Mr. Burlison fielded a question on tuition and why the numbers 
change so frequently, and explained that they have- no way of knowing for sure until 
the students show up for class In the fall. Even then, there may be drop-outs and 
additions. The number for the 1996-97 year given now is a pure guess. 

The motion to accept the report and act on the motion by the Study Committee was 
made by Nance Johnson, seconded by Sherre Tullar was passed in the affirmative by 
voice vote. 

ARTICLE 3: We, the undersigned Orford Voters do petition the Orford School Board 
to include the following Warrant Article in the 1996 Orford School District Warrant. 

To see if the town will act to accept the following recommendations of the Orford High 
School Study Committee: 

That a Committee be appointed; two members each by the School Board and the 
Board of Selectmen, and one member by the Moderator, to fully explore, negotiate, 
and endorse a plan for an educational partnership with neighboring towns. Such a 
core committee would: 

1. Be charged with providing an interim report at the 1997 school meeting 
and conclusive findings at the 1988 school meeting, and recruit additional 
members; 

2. Be provided with funds not to exceed $5,000.00 for appropriate 
professional feasibility studies and research; 

3. Begin feasibility studies with neighboring towns and the local educational 
community, who will provide representation in discussion groups charged to 
research the areas of: 

a) regional interest 

b) financial requirements 

c) school management and administration 

d) curriculum design 

(Inserted by petition) (The majority of the School Board recommends this 
article.) 

Motion: Tom Trunzo Second: Carol Perry 

This motion was carried with a show of hands. 1 20 - Yes 50 - No. An effort to contain 
the study period to one year was defeated. 

The ballot box was closed for casting ballots for School District Officers (10:10 p.m.). 

ARTICLE 4: The undersigned registered voters of the Town of Orford, NH hereby 
petition the Orford School Board to include the following article on the Annual School 
District Meeting Warrant: 



94 



Whereas the Town of Ofiord has reached the outer limits of what it can raise to fund the 
public education of its children; 

Whereas in 1995 the Town voted to appoint a special committee to study alternative 
ways of providing secondary education to high school students and there has been 
significant opportunity for public discussion; 

Whereas the cost of operating Orford High School has resulted in the next-to-highest 
per student tax burden in some 31 area towns (UVLSRPC 1993 report); 

Whereas because the Orford tuition rate is much higher than alternate area schools, 
surrounding towns are beginning to designate high schools other than Orford; 

Whereas tuition income is cnjcial to the financial viability of Orford High School and 
cannot be reliably forecast until the sending towns know the future of the school; 

Whereas a late 1995 town-wide survey indicated a majority of voters who responded 
favored an open voucher vs. continuing present maintenance of a high school (67 yes, 
27 no); 

It is petitioned that the School District see if it will vote to direct the School Board to 
determine all legal action necessary to close the Orford High School and establish a 
date certain for closure while maintaining and maximizing the local educational 
opportunities for elementary and middle students within the financial ability of the 
Town to support. Such completed action, including the date certain for closure, shall 
be reported to the Town no later than the last scheduled School Board meeting in 
June 1996. (Inserted by petition) (The School Board does not recommend this 
article.) 

Motion to pass over his article: Tom Trunzo Second: Mark Blanchard 

After Jonathan Sanders made the point that if this article were to be passed over, it 
could be taken up at a later time in the meeting, perhaps after the majority of the 
Interested voters had departed, Tom Trunzo withdrew the motion to pass over, Mark 
Blanchard withdrew his second. 

Motion to act on the article as appears was made by Mark Blanchard and seconded by 
Tim Dyke. 

Paper ballots were used. Total cast: 301 Yes - 87 No - 211 with three spoiled. 

ARTICLE 5: Voted in the affirmative by voice vote that the School District authorize 
the School Board to apply for, accept and expend, without further action of the School 
District Meeting, money from any source which becomes available during the fiscal 
year, provided that (1) such money is used for legal purposes for which a school 
district may appropriate money, (2) The School Board holds a public hearing on the 



95 



expenditure of such money before it is expended, and (3) The expenditure of such 
money does not require the expenditure of other School District funds. 

Motion: Paul Messer Second: Sara Schwaegler 

ARTICLE 6: Voted in the affirmative by voice vote that the School District raise and 
appropriate the sum of $250.00 to help support the Claremont Lawsuit Coalition which

which have sued the State of New Hampshire for the right of all children to have an 
equal opportunity to receive an adequate education regardless of the relative wealth 
or lack thereof of the town in which such children happen to live due to New 
Hampshire's near total reliance on property taxes to fund education. (The majority of 
the School Board recommends this appropriation.) 

Motion: Tom Tmnzo Second: Carol Perry 

ARTICLE 7: Voted that the School District raise and appropriate the sum of One 
Thousand Dollars ($1,000.00) to be added to the Capital Reserve Fund created on

the support of schools, for the payment of salaries for School District officials and 
agents, and for the payment of statutory obligations of the District for the 1996-97 fiscal 
year. (The School Board recommends this action.) 

Motion: Sandra Nordstrom 

Motion: A motion made by Tom Trunzo for this article was to reduce the above amount 
by $21 ,000.00 (Twenty-one Thousand Dollars) because the OTA had agreed to reduce 
their contract by this amount.

with Tom's figures. Second: Sherre Tullar. 

Bruce Schwaegler made a motion to reduce the $2,120,736.00 by another $20,000, 
making the amount to be raised $2,100,736. Second: Joe Arcolio

January 14, 1997 



At a legal meeting of the registered voters of the Orford School District held on 
January 14, at 7:30 P.M., in the multi-purpose room in the Orford Elementary School, 
the following article was discussed: To see if the District will authorize the formation of 
a committee to study the advisability of the Orford School District withdrawing from 
School Administrative Unit #22 in accordance with RSA 194-C-2. 

The meeting was called to order at 7:30 P.M., by Moderator Peter Thomson with a 
salute to the flag. After reading the article to be discussed, the meeting was open to 
questions. Superintendent Joseph Delia Badia was present as well as Attorney David 
Bradley to answer questions. 

it was explained that with the change in the law, that any district may withdraw from a 
supervisory district after presenting a plan for all services provided by the supervisory 
district to be continued. A superintendent is not necessary if these services can be 
adequately provided in the plan which must be approved by the State Education 
Board. The vote to withdraw must be by a 60% majority. 

After a half hour of questions it was decided that a committee consisting of 2 board 
members, 5 community members appointed by the Moderator and the Superintendent 
as the ex-officio member would be formed. Moderator Thomson asked that any 
interested persons contact him for consideration. 

The time frame for the committee is loose, and the committee will need to be re-

To: The School Board, Superintendent of Schools and Citizens of the 
Orford School District: 



I respectfully submit this, my first annual report as interim Principal of the Orford 

School. 

We are currently in a period of transition as we look forward to preparing our trimester 

block scheduling for the high school students for the upcoming school year. It is our 

hope that block scheduling will enable students more flexibility to enroll in a broader 

scope of courses over their four years here. In addition to this, we are still proceeding 

with curriculum updates/revisions. Language Arts, Guidance, Health, Technology and 

Mathematics have been completed, we will be embarking upon science and history 

next. 

The seven sub-committees of the School Board have continued to provide consistent 

input to the Board and Principal to assist us with community input on how Orford 

Schools could grow from here. The adult education classes have resumed again this 

year thanks to the staff on board. Current offerings for this winter were: Ground Zero 

to Cyber-Ace, Fumiture Refinishing/Constnjction/Restoration, Travel French, Novels of 

the American West, Black and White Photography, Poetry Writing Wori^shop, 

Introduction to Pottery, Getting Acquainted with King Lear .Tox Mox Cooking, Book 

Making, Russian Short Story: Talks and Tea and Open Mike. 

This year, we have again been fortunate to have an Artist-in-Residence come to our 

school for a week long program in poetry for our third grade and some of our high 

school English classes. Many thoughts of appreciation go to our Booster club for 

providing the funds for this enrichment program. 

The 368th Combat Engineers have continued to work on the Academy Building with 

our long range plant improvements set forth by Mr. Burlison. Their next scheduled 

weekend is in March of 1 997. 



101 



Our School To Work Initiative (OSTWI) brought in an excess of $78,000 to enhance 
our present curriculum. Joe Stallsmith and Barry LeBarron, along with several staff 
and community members were successful in bringing this program to Orford. Many 
people are working to implement its goals. An on-site Greenhouse, Desk Top 
Publishing Center and upgraded Business Computer work station will help students K- 
12 enhance their curriculum studies to be better prepared for the 21st century world of 
work. 

In conclusion, I would like to thank all the staff, students and community members for 
their show of warmth upon my recent arrival here at Orford. I look forward to working 
with the Orford School Board, community members, faculty and staff in providing our 
students with a superb academic learning environment. 



Sincerely, 



Leonard Berliner, Ed.D. 
Principal

INDEPENDENT AUDITOR'S REPORT 



To The Board 
Orford School District 
Orford, New Hampshire 

We have audited the accompanying general-purpose financial statements of the 
Orford School District as of and for the year ended June 30, 1996, as listed in the 
table of contents. These general-purpose financial statements are the responsibility of 
the Orford School District management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on 
these general-purpose financial statements based on our audit. 

We conducted our audit in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards. 
Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable 
assurance about whether the general-purpose financial statements are free of material 
misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the 
amounts and disclosures in the general-purpose financial statements. An audit also 
includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by 
management, as well as evaluating the overall general-purpose financial statement 
presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion. 

In our opinion the general-purpose financial statements referred to above present 
fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Orford School District as of 
June 30, 1996, and the results of its operations for the year then ended in conformity 
with generally accepted accounting principles. 

Our audit was conducted for the purpose of forming an opinion on the general- 
purpose financial statements taken as a whole. The individual and combining fund 
financial statements and schedules listed in the table of contents are presented for 
purposes of additional analysis and are not a required part of the general-purpose 
financial statements of the Orford School District. Such information has been 
subjected to the auditing procedures applied in the audit of the general-purpose 
financial statements and, in our opinion, is fairiy presented in ail material respects in 
relation to the general-purpose financial statements taken as a whole.
